Dying Wish

The warehouse was just outside of town, near the train station. Everyone knew that it was abandoned, and they couldn’t remember a time before that. “Probably used to store shoes.” was what my parents told me, the first time I came home from school after hearing the rumour. A little bit inside everyone believed the rumours, that vampires lived in the warehouse, but we kept ignoring it. We left it to playground fun, and yet the warehouse remained.

So There it is. Over the winter I finished a short story about vampires. My first step towards finishing a vampire novel. I hope you like it, but be warned it is a little gruesome.

I’ve created a Goodreads account, which you can see HERE. You can follow/add as a friend, in order to keep up to date with my challenge of reading a book a week, if you want too. I’ve also added a widget at the bottom of this site, which tells you what I’m reading at the moment. You might find it interesting.

As 2012 drew to an end so did one of Marvel’s longest running comics. The Amazing Spider-man finished on the 26th December with its 700th issue. For those of you that don’t know the last arc of spider-man involved Doc Ock swapping his mind with Peter Parker and taking over the roll of spider-man, he then fights Peter and defeats him. It’s stories like this that make people laugh at comics, but that wasn’t my problem. Just seconds before Peter’s died, Ock has a revelation and decides to stop his 50 year (In real time. More like five years in the comic.) crime spree in order to become good, and a “superior” spider-man, which leads into Slott’s new series Superior Spider-man. I don’t have high hopes, but I will stick with it. Amazing Spider-man 700 was a disappointing (And probably temporary) end to a legendary title, and a disappointing end to 2012, the year of comics. With brilliant new titles, like Saga and Fatale. Landmark events like the 100th issue of The Walking Dead, both Night of the Owls and Death of the Family in Batman, Avengers vs X-men. All new X-men, The Massive. Just to name a few. Also the TV series Arrow. The blockbuster movies Avengers, Amazing Spider-man and The Dark Knight Rises. It just seems to me that Spider-man 700 was a disappointing end, to what had been an epic year in comics. Hopefully Superior Spider-man will be good. Slott is not a bad writer, but the ending of Amazing Spider-man just seemed rushed.

Thanks for reading,
